We are bringing you something completely radical for a bead store – this week we have … glass beads.
I know, I know – it’s a stretch for us. What are we thinking? Well – I just want you to know that we are on the bleeding edge – the forefront of new and innovative technologies – bringing you untried and untested ideas so that you too can craft designs so forward-thinking that long after we are all dust – folks will be saying – “wow – they were so far ahead of their time.”
Fancy Fire polished faceted beads. Old stock – it has been lurking about in boxes for years, and trust me – buy what you need, because we can’t restock these.
Fire polished beads are faceted and then smoothed slightly and gently with a flame to take the sharp edges off the facets, making them smooth and comfy-wumfy to wear. They make lovely accents to your designs, or as the main course.
As always – all the new stuff is here. Cheers!
